According to garage sale guru Jenn Callum, garage sales are the best place to shop because you can find just about anything.
Callum says buyers on a tight budget can find electronics, appliances, clothing, and shoes at amazingly cheap prices.
However, not all things should be bought second-hand.
Callum explains, Definitely never buy used undergarments at a garage sale or anywhere else for that matter. Other personal items, like opened make-up, medications, food, pacifiers, and nipples shouldnt be bought there either.
The yard sale queen says the only downfall to garage sales is that theyre a crap shoot.
She says, You cant guarantee youre going to find anything worthwhile on any given day. Its never a predictable shopping trip. But you cant put a dollar amount on how much you save, and haggling is perfectly acceptable.
